Australian all-rounder James Faulkner believes experience in India can certainly boost his hopes of selection in the upcoming Indian tour.
“I’ve spent a lot of time playing cricket in the subcontinent, I’d like to think my name’s there or thereabouts, being spoken about,” he told reporters on Tuesday (January 10). “But you’d have to ask the selectors, captain, and coach. I’m just taking each series as it comes. There’s a lot of cricket to be played before a lot of players will start thinking about that. They want an all-rounder who can bat in the top six. Hopefully, I can try and grab some opportunities,” he said.
“I’m good mates with George, I played a lot of cricket for Australia and Tassie (Tasmania) with him. I definitely learned a lot,” he said. “I’m sure if I was in his position he’d be disappointed and upset with me. I’m the same.
“There’s a lot of experience we will lose in the change room but having said that, we’ve still got a hell of a lot sitting there,” the all-rounder added.
